How much is the event?

That’s an easy one… It’s just $12! (AUD)
We know times are tough for a lot of people right now, so we wanted the event to be as affordable as possible!

Is there a family option? Can we all share one ticket?

We know times are tough for many people, so we’ve done everything we can to make the event affordable for everyone, but we don’t have any family or group tickets available.

If you’re all watching from a single device, or only one of you is competing in eSports, then you can certainly share a single ticket!

However, if you want to participate in multiple live sessions at the same time, or if more than one of you wishes to enter one of the eSports events, then you will need multiple tickets.

What if I miss a session?
